Storm Summary Hurricane ChrisQuick Facts

• Became hurricane: June 21
• Average date of 1st hurricane: August 10
To refer to “Chris” as an “overachiever” may be a bit of an understatement.
While Chris poses no threat to land and is expected to transition to a “non-tropical” low pressure system soon, it has become the Atlantic season’s first hurricane, at a latitude of roughly 41 degrees north, no less!
Only one
 other time on record during the month of June was an Atlantic hurricane farther north than Chris. You’d have to go all the way back to 1893, when a hurricane in post-analysis made it as far as 44 degrees north latitude, just south of the coast of Newfoundland!

Only twice before in history (1887 and 1959) has the third storm of the season formed earlier than Chris.

Later this week into the weekend, we will be monitoring the Gulf of Mexico for possible tropical development. For more on that story, click here to view our full Tropical Update.
